Thin Mint Mousse

First of all– I have something completely unrelated to Thin Mints to share with you….
I’m guest posting today!
But not just any guest post– this one doesn’t even involve any dessert at all.
Nope. It’s all about how I fell in love with my husband.
Super gross, mushy stuff.
It’s on a way awesome blog, written by my friend, Mackenzie.
When you’re finished with the thin mints over here, make sure to stop and check it out at
FRIDAY NIGHT DATE NIGHT!
(and try not to make too much fun of me. it’s painfully mushy.)
And if you’re not interested in reading the intense details of my personal/romantic life…
well, I can’t say that I blame you. So how about some dessert??
Thin Mint Mousse anyone?
Two great things about this Mousse (aside from it’s amazing taste):
1. No precious Thin Mints required (unless you WANT to use them)
2. As always, this can be made as low sugar/cal/fat as you want (or as high!!)

I’m a texture girl, so my favorite thing about this mousse: the chocolate layer in between. Once cooled and hardened, it gives a little extra something to bite through– kind of like the chocolate coating on a thin mint!

    I can’t get a hold of thin mints here so this recipe is perfect! I love chocolate and mint together. Great recipe!

    Another great one Ashton! My dad is visiting next week and this will be perfect for him. Especially because I will have extra chocolate pudding from another recipe I’m making. And I can’t wait to read your love story. I love mushy. :)
